UNRIC, DG Justice from the European CommissionUN Women, the United Nations Population Fund UNFPA and the Mission of Canada to the EU welcome you to the screening of "The Daughter Tree"

The Daughter Tree is an epic documentary film, six years in the making, about the disappearance of women in India resulting in all-male populations in many of the villages. This film follows a midwife struggling to encourage women to bring baby girls into the world. In the Village of Men, where no baby girl has been born for two decades, families are marooned in a womanless existence. It's when we visit the Village of the Daughter Tree that we discover something quite magical has been going on in a remote corner of India. Every time a baby girl is born, a tree is planted. 

The film will be introduced by Chris Cooter, Chargé d'affaires, Mission of Canada to the EU, followed by a panel discussion with:

  • A speaker from the European Commission, DG Justice, (tbc);

  • Dagmar Schumacher, Director of the Brussels Office of UN Women

  • Sietske Steneker, Director of the Brussels Office of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA);

  • Moderated by: Caroline Petit, Deputy Director, UNRIC.
